Torch Classic Mountain Center Lock Hubs

 

Industry Nine is pleased to announce the addition of Torch Classic Mountain Center Lock hubs. Regarded as one of the “go-to” hubsets among riders, artisan wheel builders and industry taste-makers alike, Torch Classic Mountain hubs have established a reputation of performance, serviceability and quality. The addition of the Center Lock brake rotor interface brings those desired characteristics to even more riders and keeps Industry Nine poised as the vanguard of options and compatibility. As always, every Torch Classic hub is manufactured in Asheville, North Carolina by Industry Nine with design, machining, finishing and assembly achieved entirely on-premises. Torch Classic Mountain Center Lock will be available in Boost and traditional mountain configurations.

BigRig 760 Wheels

Expanding the fleet of our BigRig fat bike wheel range, Industry Nine is eager to roll out the BigRig 760. Utilizing the Torch fat bike hub and spoke chassis system, the BigRig760 employs the Hed Cycling BAD alloy rim to create a lightweight, agile and value-packed fat bike wheelset.

The heart of the BigRig 760 is the Torch fat bike system chassis. Made in Asheville with full color customization available, the 32 hole hub and spoke chassis is the foundation of all our fat bike system wheelsets. Adaptable to every current axle and drive train option on the market Torch fat bike hubs are remarkably easy to maintain, configure, and boast our legendary three degree freehub engagement. Plus, the lubricants used in the bearings and freehub drive mechanism are rated to well below freezing, so weather will never park the BigRig 760. Whether riding a 170mm or 190mm-based frame, Industry Nine has the rider covered with two rear hub options for perfect fit. Joining the rim to the hub are 32 straight-pull, direct-thread aluminum spokes. Industry Nine integrates spoke and nipple to produce spokes that are simultaneously stout and gram-cheating. Torch hub and spoke chassis systems emphasize strength to weight and striking aesthetics; creating the ideal platform for the Hed BAD rim.

Tubeless-ready, feathery weight and optimized width for moving across the snow or trail as fast as possible – Hed BAD checks the boxes. Using an innovative single wall construction optimized for tubeless operation, the rim is most at home on snow, sand or mellow single track. Since the rim inner width measures at 76.0mm, any fat bike tire will be right at home. Complete wheelset weights are as low as 2150 grams – over a pound lighter than competing alloy fat bike wheelsets!
